Hanoi (VNA) –
The Long Hau industrial park, located in the Mekong Delta province of Long An, is working to become greener.

Currently, 18 percent of its total area is covered with trees, with each investor at the park requested to use at least 20 percent of their leased land to develop green space.

The management board, meanwhile, has been paying close attention to effective waste classification and treatment and energy saving.

The industrial park has attracted more than 170 domestic and foreign enterprises, including those from Japan, the Republic of Korea, the US and India. Half of the total foreign-funded firms at the park are from Japan.

By mid-2018, the park’s export value amounted to nearly 400 million USD.

Long Hau Corporation, which runs the establishment, was among nine Vietnamese enterprises included in the 2017 Forbes Asia's “200 Best Under A Billion List”. The annual list honours 200 small- to medium-sized enterprises in the Asia Pacific region with sales under 1 billion USD and a track record of strong top- and bottom-line growth.-VNA
